on the jersey shore as president barack obama and new jersey governor chris christie toured hurricane damage in some of the hard-hit areas there. a little bit unexpected today, given that chris christie gave the keynote address at the republican convention against the president last summer. none of that political animosity on display today. both men said that they talked about everything from restoring power to clean drinking and sewage water in the area. >> i discussed all those issues today with the president and i'm pleased to report that he has sprung into action immediately to help get us those things while we were in the car riding together. so i want to thank him for that. he has worked incredibly closely with me since before the storm hit. >> governor christie throughout process has been responsive, he's been aggressive, i think the people of new jersey recognize that he has put his heart and soul into making sure that the people of new jersey bounce back. >> and larry, i asked the folks on the romney campaign what they made of chris christie's political bear hug here of president ba
president obama and governor romney canceled a lot of their campaign events scheduled. rightly so. they should. president obama needs to stand up and show he is the president and take charge. governor romney can't look like he is politicizing a storm where a lot of people, a lot of damage, maybe a lot of people dying. can i point something out. president obama earlier today with his fema director went to podium and gave a nice speech. be careful, people lives are number one, the most important. there is a question toward the end of the speech, what will the impact be on the election, sir? president obama said i'm not worried about the impact on the election. i'm worried about the impact on families. the election will take care of itself next week. right now the number one priority is make sure we're saving lives. my question is: where was president obama a month-and-a-half ago when four of our americans were locked down, pinned down, about to be assassinated? he was in las vegas campaigning, picking up chec checks. be fair, maybe he learned something from a month-and-a-half ago. >

, that is the new jersey governor chris christie. president obama was up there. let's listen what christi had to say about the president and what the president had to say about the new jersey governor. >> i cannot thank the president enough for his personal concern and compassion for our state and the people of our state and heard it on the phone conversations with him but i was able to witness it today personally. >> i think the people of new jersey recognize that he has put his heart and soul into making sure that the people in new jersey bounce back even stronger than before. >> and there you have president obama and chris christie less than 24 hours surveying the damage up in new jersey, as you said the campaign has restarted again, zoraida. today we will see president obama in wisconsin, colorado, nevada and see mitt romney in virginia and, of course, surrogates such as bill clinton, joe biden, paul ryan and marco rubio will be fanned out across the country in these closing days of the campaign. >> mark, thank you. >>> at the bottom of the hour, we'll get analysis of the final days from our pol
elected officials with president obama and governor cuomo last night going over a lot of the issues especially the housing issues that people will face. we've been in constant contact with the mayor's office. bottom line here is everybody's moving to get things done. but the challenges are so enormous, it's unlike anything i've ever seen as manhattan borough president as a public official for 20 years. >> we're showing our viewers unbelievably long lines, people waiting two or three or four hours just to get on a bus. how much longer can a situation like that continue? >> well, that's by the way another issue that i think is getting worse by the day. cabs are running out of gas. and that's a transportation opportunity for people. i haven't seen lines like this since the 1970s energy crisis. you know, jimmy carter in 1980 where you just had lines down the block of cars. we're back to that. again, that's also going to slow us in terms of getting people out of this situation. >> you know, there's a lot of uproar over whether or not the marathon this weekend in new york city should take

critical story the presidential election is now just five days away. president obama resumed campaigning today, a day after governor romney went back on the trail. they both planned to hold virtually nonstop events between now and tuesday. the race still considered too close to call of cnn's latest poll shows president obama ahead by one point. 48-47%. a national poll. the poll in the state of colorado, the new international poll shows 15% of likely polls backing obama. that's within the sampling number. 49-45, also within the margin of error. now today, governor romney's camp said he will campaign in pennsylvania on sunday. they claimed the deep blue key stone state is in play. they said the same thing in a memo but didn't cite any particular data. the obama campaign called it a sign of desperation on their part. joining me now with the raw politics, chief white house correspondent, jessica yellin, and jim acosta and correspondent john king. >> the storm has been a real curveball for candidates. how has mitt romney been handling transitioning back to regular campaign mode? does he feel
